Scars of War, Wounds of Peace: The Israeli-Arab Tragedy
by Shlomo Ben-ami, a review from The Atlantic Monthly by Benjamin Schwarz.
"Because it's a bracing and honest history of the Arab-Zionist confrontation, this book will displease partisans of both sides. But unconditional supporters of Israel will find both its challenges to many of the country's founding myths and its frequently severe appraisals of Israeli policies over the past half century especially disconcerting, because its author, a trained historian, was also Israel's minister of foreign affairs."
